This project in a nutshell is kind of a homage to one of my favorite childhood TV series, "Dark Shadows". After hearing about a remake currently in development, I wanted to do a self portrait series with the same type of theme.The original image was shot using my Canon T2i with the 18-55mm lens attached and also using a UV filter. I shot these under a bright florescent light in full color in RAW format (if your camera can shoot in RAW then you should, the information retained in the file is invaluable!). The rest of the details on the camera are: f/4.5, 1/4, ISO: 200, Focal length: 35mm. Then I did some contrast editing in Photoshop as well as Lightroom, and finally added my own little tweeks to give them that horror flavor. SPECIAL THANKS: to Hydro74 for the free font!!
